Winter can be such a beautiful season, but it also requires most of us to learn some special hair care tricks for winter weather.
Very often such a weather can cause havoc on your hair!
To help keep this from happening, here are 5 hair care tricks for winter to keep your hair looking as gorgeous as always!
1. Use Shampoo Sparingly
Cold winter winds cause drying of not only your skin, but also your hair and scalp! That’s why it’s really important to learn these hair care tricks for winter! Avoid shampooing your hair too much, not more than twice a week, as it also causes hair dryness.
Also, never use very hot water for washing your hair in winter, as it leaves your hair tattered and frizzy. Use lukewarm water to retain the moisture of your hair instead!
2. Conditioner is a Must
To help your hair fight against the cold, the best method is to apply a good conditioner each time you wash your hair. Make sure NOT to apply conditioner on your scalp. Making sure you condition your hair will provide a shine to your hair strands and prevent them from breakage.
Another good thing to do during the winter months is to use a deep conditioner on your hair at least once a week.
3. Avoid Your Hairdryer
It is always good to let your hair dry naturally, but it is even more important to do this during the winter season. If you feel you absolutely need to use your hairdryer, then try setting your hair dryer on the ‘cool’ mode while blow drying your hair, as cool air will damage your hair less.
Obviously it goes without saying that you should also try to avoid your flat iron and curling iron too, as much as you can.
4. Always Cover Your Hair
If you love your hair, then you should try and cover it whenever you’re outside to protect your hair from those cold winds. Wear a scarf, hat or anything else that will help to lock in the moisture of your hair to save it from breakage.
Another good thing to remember is that your scarf or cap should not be too tight as it constricts blood flow in the scalp, causing hair damage.
5. Oil Your Hair
In the winter, it is usually chilly and wet outside and dry and warm inside the house. This changing temperature harms your hair! Use oils for your hair regularly, it will help to restore moisture and give life to your lifeless locks. It is not necessary to keep the oil on for long hours. One to two hours is more than enough to do the trick. Make sure not to over use shampoo while you are washing the oil off because it will nullify the conditioning effect.
Before you know it, winter will be over and summer will come with its own set of hair challenges. But until then, enjoy the beauty of winter and remember to follow these tricks!
